      This beam was design under the concept of “continuous contour form”. It’s composing of many hexagonal module made by “in-situ stone concrete”. Each module are connect by tension force of “steel wire”, both vertical and horizontal. All the wires are attach and tied together to make the tension force run around the beam and create one massive beam. The load of beam from each end are stabilizing by an equal mass, which allow some part to extend and float on the are while the other side sink down almost touch the ground.
